Counselling Directory was set up as a free, confidential service to encourage those in distress to seek help. Now a leading support network in the UK, visitors can read about different areas of distress, view useful articles written by counsellors and refine their search to find the most appropriate help. Every counsellor on the site has either sent a copy of their qualifications and insurance cover to us, or is registered with a professional body online with recognised codes of ethics and practice, this way we can be assured of their professionalism.
Network Counselling is staffed by professional counsellors who volunteer their time to provide an affordable counselling service to the people of Bristol and surrounding areas. No one is turned away through lack of ability to pay. We offer a welcoming, safe and confidential space where people can be listened to, accepted and understood; where they can be supported in exploring the problems they face and finding their own way forward.
Network Training offers university validated courses for those wanting to train as counsellors and for those wishing to develop their listening and counselling skills in other roles and settings such as pastoral care, nursing and teaching. We also offer short courses to introduce people to basic listening skills as well as an excellent CPD programme.
